No Equal for the Hardcore Performance Enthusiast by PaulD from Texas on 07/10/2009. Trim: 2009 Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Like my son told me when I was vacillating between buying a Z06 or a Viper..."Dad, everybody has a Corvette. Nobody has a Viper." I bought the Viper. I live in an upscale area and there are still only two or three Vipers around here. I go weeks without seeing another Viper. It is just a cut above from a driving experience and ownership standpoint. It looks different, drives different, is more radical, more scarce, just plain cooler than anything else out there.
Cons: You have to tolerate a lot to own a Viper if you are used to having a "streetable" car. Vipers get hot. You can burn yourself on that side exhaust, on the shifter, on the metal pedals on the trim in the interior...on just about everything. In the Summer, a Viper is not the kind of car to take out on a formal date. Even with the A/C blasting, it is a sweat box. The car is noisy...and not just road and exhaust noise; you hear everything. The exhaust sound is kind of marginal when you consider the HP and 10 cylinders? If I really jump on my Viper in 2nd (let alone 1st gear) I can get dangerous wheel hop. It is better to "walk" the car out, and then jump on it.
Overall review: Once you've owned a Viper, what do you do? I am afraid I am going to have to get another one when I wear this one out!
